Adding a small piece of carbon (just glue it on one side of one of the elevated tail frames) will avoid the pitch linkages to rip in the bottom of the fuse and will allow a constant correct tail control.

Reason is that with vibrations sometimes, the tailboom can move a bit up and down and then the pitch linkages can touch the fuse.

Same system on UH1 and Blackhawk 480

BEst regards,


Thanks for the heads up Fabien.
